We had a record breaking high of 68 here yesterday. Yes, it was 68 in February in Indiana! Last week we had a low of -4. Oy.

So I'm thinking of making a reading challenge for myself. I am going to read a book on every single man who has been president of the United States. I plan on reading about the presidents in the order that they served. The only problem is I would end up having to read a book on George W. Bush and I would spend the whole time being like "OMG I HATE YOU, I HATE YOU, I HATE YOU!!!" I was planning on watching W. maybe I could just substitute that for a book on him. It's so not cheating, I make the rules and I say so. :P

I've been reading "The Partly Cloudy Patriot" by Sarah Vowell and feeling like I'll never be as big of a history nerd as she is. That makes me sad. I wish I had her dedication.

ETA: I went to the video rental place and got W. I also rented Big Daddy and Bewitched. It's gonna be a Blockbuster night... well not so much Blockbuster cause the one here closed down abruptly. Technically it's actually gonna be a Family Video night. I also picked me up a book on Washington at the library to start on that reading challenge.

So I watched W. Did I get any deeper insight into George W. Bush? I'm not sure. I know I was left with a confirmation of my belief that he is a jackass with serious daddy issues. I think the only people who think otherwise are the people who buy into his particular brand of ideology. People who hold the idea that the ends always justify the means; That the laws we impose on others need not be applied to ourselves when we feel threatened; That the most important guiding idea is that America has to protect itself at the cost of others (including our own soldiers) and in the pursuit of power over the rest of the world all in order to further insure our own well being. To those people he is a hero. To the rest of us he is a national disgrace.

P.S Why didn't anyone tell me that Rob Corddry was in this movie? He played Ari Fleisher! Sure he was barely in the movie but still, it's Rob Corddry.
